What better way to enjoy the maritime delights of Southampton than on a short break to the city taking in the marine world’s latest and greatest vessels at the Southampton International Boat Show?

In this special competition a two-night break for two on September 22 and 23 2023 is up for grabs including a stay at the historic White Star Tavern (whitestartavern.co.uk) plus two VIP tickets to the International Boat Show in the city. The prize also includes entry to the exclusive Quayside Club waterfront lounge with a glass of sparkling wine on arrival, drinks and a delicious buffet lunch.

The perfect place for those who love all things nautical, the White Star Tavern is an elegant pub with rooms which has links to one of the most famous ships of all time – the Titanic. Its stylish restaurant and bar offers a selection of refined pub classics using fresh, seasonal ingredients along with wines, award-winning ales and cocktails.

As well as taking in all the action at the Southampton International Boat Show, which combines maritime and aviation history with a thriving arts scene and a host of lively restaurants and buzzing bars, there’s plenty to pack in on a short break to Southampton. Yet it is also charmingly compact and exploring by foot is easy with most of its attractions within walking distance.

Visit the SeaCity Museum, which tells the story of the people of the city and their historic connections with the sea. Explore the grade I-listed Tudor House and Garden – Southampton’s most important historic building or for a more of an artistic fix, Southampton’s City Art Gallery has a collection that spans eight centuries with paintings by Monet, Gainsborough and Paula Rego.

Also, God’s House Tower, a 13th century gatehouse located in part of Southampton’s medieval city wall offers an artistic spin on the city’s history. Find out more at visitsouthampton.co.uk.
